Major Scale Malfunction
Wednesday, July 17, 2019      1 comments

I have admitted this before--I step on the scale way too often. It usually leads to frustration, with the daily fluctuations in my weight, when I'm counting and logging every point and doing a lot of walking. When the scale doesn't show a daily ... Read more
Still Losing
Sunday, July 14, 2019      4 comments

I've been meaning to write a blog update for a couple weeks. It's hard to believe but seems like I'm even busier since I retired. Of course there's doctor appointments for Du and Physical therapy appointments for me, and that's part of the busy-... Read more
A Very Good Week!

Thursday night I weighed in at WW. I thought I would have at least a 2 lb. loss, judging from the home scale. Sure enough, I was down 2.8 pounds! That's a total of 53.2 pounds since I joined WW and a total loss of 67.6 pounds from my high last A... Read more
WW Weigh-In Day
Thursday, June 27, 2019      5 comments

Today (Thursday) is my WW Day. Last week I screwed up my courage and went back after three weeks gone. I hadn't been off the program for 3 weeks, just the opposite, I had little appetite after knee surgery and had been tracking all my food and s... Read more
I Lost Weight!
Friday, June 21, 2019      5 comments

As I complained about here earlier, ever since my knee surgery on 6/6, y weight has been going up. Unexplainedly going up, because I ate very little. I didn't have much appetite, so I took advantage of that state and was well below my WW points ... Read more

Such a relief to have that second knee all done and on its way to being re-habbed and useful again. Right now I have a lot of pain, especially during Physical Therapy. but I remember that from the first time (had my right knee done three years a... Read more
Good News Times Three!
Saturday, June 01, 2019      7 comments

Good News #1: Had my CT scan last Friday to check the mass/nodule in my lung. Then I was so exhausted I came home and fell asleep (I had been up since 3 a.m.--worried about the scan I guess) immediately, without thinking to take my phone upstai... Read more
Taking a Break From Your Weight Loss Plan
Monday, May 27, 2019      5 comments

The topic last week at our WW Workshop was "taking a break from losing weight." When the discussion leader brought it up, my inner self was screaming "NO!" She had a plan on how to do it, you need to specifically set goals for taking a break, wh... Read more
Busy Stressful Days

The grandkids spent four days with us Thursday-Sunday last week. Kept us hopping, first, picking them up from school on Thursday and then taking them back to school Friday morning. Since Noah (5) is still only in pre-school, we let him stay home... Read more
In the Groove!

Spring has finally arrived in Nebraska, hopefully to stay this time. It was in the low 70's yesterday, to me that is the perfect temp. Today it is in the low to mid-80's, which is a little too warm, the house gets stuffy even though I open windo... Read more
The Right Perspective
Friday, May 03, 2019      5 comments

Yesterday (Thursday) was my weekly WW weigh-in. I felt pretty confident, my scale at home showed a slight loss (1-2 lbs.) and I am more than happy with that. But last night at the official WW scale, it showed a .2 lb. gain. I was so frustrated I... Read more
Blessed With Good Health

Last week I had a boil on the back of my neck and it was becoming painful so I went in to see the doctor and get it taken care of. She squeezed all the stuff out of it (it was already popped on its own) and then gave me an antibiotic because of ... Read more
Another Disappointing Weigh In at WW!!
Saturday, April 06, 2019      5 comments

This week my goal was to get below 190 lbs at my WW weigh-in Thursday night. The WW scale is always a bit more than my home weigh-in, which is first thing in the morning, unclothed. They make you leave your clothes on at WW! ... Read more

Despite only a .6 lb. loss last night at my WW weigh-in, I remain excited about getting this regain back off and also determined. Only 42 lbs. to go and I'm back at my happy weigh of 150. I just wish it wasn't taking so long. Hopefully every wee... Read more
Still Plugging Away
Wednesday, March 20, 2019      7 comments

I'm still on track with WW, tracking my points every day AND walking 10-14K steps every single day. Sometimes I wonder if the walking does any good, but as slowly as the weight is coming off, I wonder how slow it would be dropping, if I wasn't w... Read more
